National Parks of Thailand:
National parks in Thailand are defined as an area of least ten square kilometres that contains natural resources of ecological importance or unique beauty, or flora and fauna of special importance. Currently there are 102 national parks. Often forest parks are miscalled as national parks as well, however those are less protected and governed by the provincial administration.
The parks are administrated by the National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department (DNP), which is part of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE). The department was newly created in 2002, and took over the national parks from the Royal Forest Department of the Ministry of Agriculture.
The first national park was Khao Yai in 1961, when the National Park Act B.E. 2504 was passed. The first marine park was Khao Sam Roi Yot, established in 1966. In 1993 the administration of the national parks was split into two divisions, one for the terrestrial and one for the marine parks.
Controversies about Thailand's national parks include excessive development and private concessions. Ko Samet, and other island-based national parks, are particularly impacted by private concessions, often in the form of excessive bungalow developments. Further, many of the northern parks are greatly impacted by illegal swidden farming and poaching.
There are 33 national parks and three marine parks in the process of creation, and are scheduled to be officially gazetted in the future.
An authority is pushing for a plan to establish 38 more national parks in the country. If the plan is implemented, the new parks will cover more than 11 million rai of land. Paisarn Kuwalairat, who heads the National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department, Thursday revealed that the Cabinet in fact already approved in principle royal decrees declaring 17 of these planned national parks. The Royal Forest Department has no objection
